Brown. Brown’s strategy was to focus on inconsistencies in some of the descriptions given by Willie Marins and Alfred Bello. The defense produced a number of witnesses who testified that Carter and Artis had been in the Nite Spot (a nearby bar) at the time of the shooting. Both men were convicted. Prosecutors sought the death penalty, but jurors recommended that each defendant received a life sentence.
Although Towler testified that his only meeting with Stone was at the Happy Kup during breakfast, there was sufficient evidence for corpus delicti on the murder crime. There was overwhelming evidence to show that Stone had earlier beaten Stone and declared him a dead snitch. Additionally, when he was last seen, the deceased was in the company of Towler, the same man who had earlier beaten him and who had a motive to kill him. Although there was evidence that Stone could have died from other causes that were nor crime related, the introduction of evidence by the prosecution on criminal agency were sufficient to convict Towler. On the action of the district attorney seizing documents from Towler without a warrant or the consent of the defense counsel, the same cannot warrant the dismissal of a case or the watering down of evidence presented (Gardner & Anderson, 2009).

Theoretical Integration In an attempt to combine my three chosen theories, I will use End to End integration. This integration is typically used when theorists expect that one theory will come before or after another in terms of temporal ordering of casual factors (Tibbets). Summary Sandy Hook Elementary School endured a gruesome crisis due to Adam Lanza’s loathsome ways. With the help of the diagnosis of Lanza’s prior illnesses, police and psychologists were able to successfully examine his personal life to identify most of his motives for the mass-shooting. My purpose was to accurately integrate the Social Bonding Theory, Rational Choice Theory, and Biosocial Theory by applying the End to End integration to understand why the perpetrator carried out his plan.
Fulminante (1991), Oreste Fulminante had been convicted of the murder of his step-daughter, Jeneane Hunt. Prior to his murder conviction, he had been arrested and incarcerated for another crime, not related to the murder of his step-daughter. While incarcerated, Fulminante befriended another inmate, Anthony Sarivola, who was also an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Upon direction from Sarivola’s FBI contact, Sarivola worked to see if he could find out more information regarding the allegations that Fulminante had killed his step-daughter. Sarivola later had a conversation with Fulminante regarding the rough treatment he had been receiving from other inmates and offered to protect him if he would tell him the truth about the murder of his step-daughter, Jeneane.
As Cullen continues throughout the book, he builds on the normal things in Columbine that turned into the massacre. Along with the normalities at Columbine High School, Cullen tries to make sense of each step the gunmen took before and during the killing spree. By analyzing the victims’ stories, and the killers’ journals and videos, Cullen shines light on the massacre. Although it may not bring any relief to victims and their families, Cullen’s team uncovered the psychopaths within Dylan and Eric. The discovery of their psychotic state, brought understanding to a new generation of killers.
For example, saying that Lizzie Borden killed her parents makes sense when he/she says it, but there is a lot of evidence to prove she has done it. From the documents read, they report that a girl named Eli Bence saw Lizzie asking for a deadly poison called prussic acid, the night before the murders of Andrew and Abby Borden (Linder, 2004). Honestly, who else would she ask for poison? She totally killed her own parents! Stating that, while at one time it may have been true that Andrew and Abby Borden were alive, now we can state that Lizzie Borden murdered them.
By using reason to back up his thoughts and statements as he did throughout his essay, McWilliams encourages the audience to replace meats on their plates with vegetables. He urges the audience to make this change to their meals because of the amount of energy that is used to produce meat in comparison to plants. A pound of chicken can be produced by 6 pounds of grain while one pound of beef can be produced using 10 to 16 pounds of grain. To grow a tomato, 13 liters of water are required while creating a burger requires 2,400 liters of water. Since the average American consumers 273 pounds of meat each week, McWilliams says to ditch the read meat at least once a week.
The accused was defended by his own brother, Charles Ind, who was also gave insight into the family life in Woodland Park. Charles Ind stated, that many forms of abuse, including sexual, took place during their life together with Kermode Jordan and the negligence by their mother Pamela, thus giving reason to the murders. Evidence was brought forward from the night of the murders and the prosecutor stated: “whatever happened in that house, has been exagerated for one purpose, to get this defendant off as an excuse to kill.” The jury fas faced with the question, “is abuse really a reason for murder?” After several questionings and examination of evidence, the jury found the defendant guilty of first degree murders of Pamela and Kermode Jordan and the court sentenced Jacob Ind to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Ind was sent to Colorado State Penitentiary where he will spend his imprisonment in solitary
Some even suspect the Las Vegas Police Department of having something to do with it”. More recently though, Suge Knight has admitted after 21 years he knows who killed Tupac Shakur” (Monti, personal). Knight’s officially signed affidavit that his Reggie Wright Jr. his head of security at the time and his ex wife Sharitha has been linked to Tupac 's death by LAPD detectives. Though, Knight was the intended target of the shooting, so Wright Jr. and Sharitha could gain control of Death Row Recorders. Suge Knight does second these claims however it is hard to believe because Suge was suspected of Pac’s murder due to his inconsistent testimonies before (Alexis, Suge Knight..killed
Accused Again – Steven Avery Steven Avery was accused of the ruthless murder of Teresa Halbach. She was on the Avery property to take photos of Steven’s van which he wanted to sell. Over the next few hours, she was ‘apparently’ murdered and her body burned. Only a few short days after this, the unreliable Manitowoc Police Department charged Steven Avery with Halbach’s murder. After following and studying the case, I am convinced that Steven is innocent, and has been framed for Halbach’s murder.

This gave prosecutors the authority to decide which cases should be filed in adult court. In the old charging system, judges who believe that a youth could be rehabilitated, even murder cases, such as the McInerney case, were kept in Juvenile Court.
